The Chinese new year begins on 25th January and once again LEGO is releasing a cute rendition of the year's zodiac animal, which this year is 40355 Year of the Rat.
This image was sent to me by my good friend Nick in New York. I've no idea where he obtained the set from but I'm trying to find out!
The tradition of releasing small sets like this began in 2015 with 40148 Year of the Sheep and like the others this one comes in a flap-top box with an envelope inside that can, as is customary, be filled with money before gifting.
I suspect, like the others, it will be widely available in due course.
